College Football's Battleground States(SEC related) ...

Cool article & map from the WSJ....

quote:

To find out where the public stands on important issues such as whether Florida is more popular with Floridians than Florida State, The Wall Street Journal compiled data from Public Policy Polling. The surveys ask's respondents in 15 football "swing states" which school is their favorite


The map is broken down by overall, democrat, republican & a wildcard question. They polled 6 SEC states, the overall results were....

Texas... Texas-23%...aTm-14%...Baylor-10%...

Miss.... Miss. St-36%... OMiss-21%... S. Miss-27%...

Bama... Bama58%...Aub28%...

GA... UGA45%... GT 14%...

Fla... UF26%...FSU21%...UM11%...

S.Car.. USCjr 52%... Clem 25%...

No states add up to 100%, obviously there are lots of out of state school & smaller school fans in each state, but Ga. has the most.

Here's the map...click to enlarge.

What do the different colors mean by the percentages. And I think Alabama has the most..

Here's what I take from the data:

Amongst Texas Republicans (about 1.3 million more Republicans than Democrats in Texas based on last night's results ) the Aggies and Longhorns have approximately equal fan support.

Amongst Texas Democrats (who in our state make up fewer overall college football fans than Republicans obviously) tu is nearly three times as popular as us.

I would have assumed the numbers would look something like this based on the history/traditions/cultures of both schools and the makeup of both student bodies/former students... but it's almost comical the "partisan gap" between the two schools.

More people prefer Southern Miss than OM?

I think the SC numbers might be a little skewed by the fact that Clemson fans don't understand the voting process...
